In Topic: Problems with e-Sword 13 and Wine on Ubuntu

29 April 2021 - 09:40 PM

WMP worked on old version of linux using wine back in 2002 era, but nobody working on anymore. As an alternative if your hardware supports it, using linux you can install windows as a virtual machine with libvirt(kvm) or virtualbox.  This way you can install and use e-sword on native windows.  For Windows license you can use free (limited) version of windows 10 (google how to free windows) or maybe you can find a license key online. Let me know if you're interested and I can provide you with more information.

 

The real solution IMO would be to get the online version back up.  Wish more people would get on board with that since it would help so many linux users.  Many less fortunate people around the world must use linux because Microsoft and Apple are too expensive, it's a shame such brilliant software must go un-used for so many.

The best person you can talk to about that is Rick Meyers, the author of e-Sword. Click here to contact him.

 

Hi APsit190, thanks so much for the reply.  I've actually already tried contacting Mr. Meyers through the link on his site a few times over the past year or so, but I imagine he gets hundreds of emails daily and must have a hard time going through them all.  I'm sure my messages are getting lost in the wayside or maybe he's just not interested, I don't know.  But yes, thanks again for the reply. 

 

My hope is that someone here might have a more direct line to Mr. Meyers and might pass the idea along or possibly already have access to the site archive and willing to work with me directly (with Ricks permission of course).

I would like to offer to help get the live site back up online.  I own a hosting company and can offer free hosting for the site, also I can help with upgrades and tech support as well.  Hopefully somebody reading this might have information about how to get the site back online.
